New Doll for Sale – The Princess and the Frog.

7 years, 6 months ago 47

Available at Strychnin Gallery in the Kingdoms of Twilight and Magic exhibition!


Please allow me to introduce my brand new piece: The Princess and the Frog!

A spoiled princess Arabelle learns a lesson in keeping promises and finding true love after meeting and reluctantly befriending a Poison Dart frog, who challenges her self-centered world views and becomes her handsome prince. And she becomes a better person.

Based on the Grimm Brothers fairy tale “The Frog Prince”.


Materials and construction:

A porcelain doll with a one of a kind engraving and a limited edition head ornament customized with one of a kind accents.
Conical headdress carved in wax, cast in bronze, plated with 24k gold, enameled and set with 15 faceted blue Topazes and 5 pearls. Pendant is a blue Topaz in 18k gold setting with a 24k gold plated chain. Tattoo of a Poison Dart frog is a combination of engraving on porcelain and china-painting. Veil is soft bridal chiffon, set with 300 Austrian crystals. Doll is ball-jointed, china-painted porcelain, lined with leather and strung with 11 steel springs. Wig is removable, magnetic mohair fiber, permanently-styled into 15 braids.


After months in construction, I’m crazy about how it had turned out!

  19. Laurel says:

  25. JugendMoth says:

    I realy like that little frog! My compliments!!!

  26. Sailor_Orbit says:

    love it! what headmold is she? I would also be interested in purchasing the tiny crown, but still would like to put it on my dolls.

  27. Marina says:

    Glad you guys like it!

    She is based on a Ruby mold, with re-sculpting to her chin, nose and eye sockets.

  28. Bertha says:

    Out of speech! Stunning doll! You’ve done it again!

  29. Sabrina says:

    She is unbelievable! I DO feel sorry for the other artists- she is truly astonishing- I now have a new favorite, AGAIN! :D

  30. Sylvia says:

    you have created the perfectly valid explanation for why she didn’t want to kiss him. I wouldn’t kiss a poison dart frog and i like frogs… I think it might even be very deadly to try that.

    The headdress turned out nicely (I would really love it in silver)and i adore the painting on her stomach.

    good luck for you and your doll

  31. Manü says:

    OMG, awesome and beautiful creations!!!LOVE,LOVE

  32. jacquelyn says:

    she’s lovely. great job, as always. i love the frog tattoo on her belly. she’s perfect. i’m really glad the crown turned out well, its a work of art in itself.

  33. Mai says:

    I recognize this beauty. The face is the same as the lovely platinum doll you made for the Vogue shoot last fall. She has a truly captivating face, and is, I feel, one of your loveliest dolls to date. The fairytale headdress is truly a majestic masterpiece Marina. The doll’s honey-hued braids really set off her face and compliment the glowing gold-tones of the headdress.

  34. Silvia says:

    como siempre superando toda imaginación :D

  35. Sailor_Orbit says:

    wow i wouldn’t have guessed it was ruby! she looks really western. I really love her wig and headdress. really beautiful

  36. Sailor_Orbit says:

    oh btw your face up has vastly improved! especially the eyebrows/ eyelashes, it looks so soft and feathery

  37. MissLK says:

    I love all the unexpected elements of your version from the sensual interplay of the position of the frog tattoo, its posture, the serenity of Arabella’s face, and the intricate conical headdress – the verticalness of the entire composition!

    Are her hands more plump than the usual porcelain ED hands?

  38. KTenery says:

    She is beautiful! I love love love the frog!

  39. Ginie says:

    OOOoooohhhh …..OoooOOOOOOoooohhhh….
    OoooOOOOOOOOoooohhhhhhhh !!!!!

    Not much else comes to my amazed mind in front of such beauty…


  40. Katrin says:

    She is very,very beautiful, I love her …. is really great ! I love your work Marina.

    I have little question Marina.
    Is Saturday May 11, You will be personally in Berlin exhibition ?
    -Is only your dolls?


  41. Orangey says:

    Well, this headpiece is one of my favorites to date, the shape is remarkable in its simplicity, and the whole headdress has absolutely stunning accents! It’s just genius! What also took me, though, is her toad tattoo, I love the realistic, almost 3D approach you took to the frog, it seems like it could jump up at any moment! Amazing, congratulations!

  42. Dani says:

    Beautiful rendering of a Dendrobates tinctorius ‘Azureus’! Was there a specific reason you chose this poison dart frog or what it simple aesthetics? She is beautiful as always, although I would like to see a more striking face sculpt. It seems as though you are stuck fairytales as of late. Anything coming up not related to this subject?


  43. silvana says:

    Wow, wow, wow! What awesome doll!!!! Very impressed!!!

  44. Vera Ni says:

    Stunning! You amaze me every single time! Thank the stars for your talent!

  45. Carola says:

    Beautiful as always.

    Will she kiss or will she smash the frog? ;)
